Actually it would sound like snark if it had been intended to be
confrontational. I think you're reading too much into it.

As evidenced by the original topic of this thread, some people actually
want to use command-line programs for non-developery things. There
isn't a hard and fast line between 'developer' and 'user'. The
wonderful thing about the old UNIX system (which I started using in the
1970s - yes, I'm that old) was that all the essential documentation was
included and machine-readable. That's a tradition to be cherished, not
cast aside.
